The species, the size, the difficulty of capture, the habitat and the applied hunting technique are the key factors that will characterize a prey as a trophy or not…

Trophy or not, the underwater hunter makes a choice. Ecology and environmental sustainability are a way of life and underwater hunting with apnea is the ultimate manifestation of such a behavior.

The misconception about ecology and sustainable fishing that is deliberately cultivated for political reasons, must find the underwater hunter confronted. In difficult times, more difficult and organized reactions are required.
